I appreciate I am at risk of placing a stick in a hornets nest by daring to mention or start this thread - and honestly, I am not panic-ing it is just a question, particularly to the ITK's who are usually pretty much on the button - is there any hint or movement or any sign that we are looking near, far and wide for strengthening our much maligned defence?
We have done well so far in the transfer market and I know everything takes time and not everything can be done quickly, but unless I am missing it, I have seen little sign thus far of any noticeable interest in the market for building our defensive capabilities - I could be wide of the mark.
I think it is a difficult area to strengthen, as from what I can tell, there is not a plethora of players out there that are available in this position, that would knowingly significantly improve what we have, unless you are willing to fork out a huge sum of money, and even then, the choice is quite limited and if they were that highly valued, they would probably not choose SFC anyway. Maguire is a case in point - ridiculously expensive for what he is.

I should probably know and I could not be bothered to look it up, but just wondered when it closes for this summer. I know a lot of you on here will know it in an instant.
There is no hidden meaning or agenda in this question, just curious.

There seems to be growing noise that Liverpool are interested in him. Any truth in it or just media rumour and hype? I suspect TCM will have his finger on the pulse.

I read today that Nigel Adkins decided to reject a renewal of his contract with Hull City as he was concerned with the manner in which the owners are running the club. The Alam owners have been a nightmare for Hull City since they arrived. Adkins very much respected and admired by the Hull fans.

I guess I am getting old, but even when I was young I always knew that wherever I went to respect the place I was in and the people that I was amongst. I am not saying I was a little angel who did not have a few too many sometimes, but I still knew how to manage my consumption and how not to behave like an idiot.
Why do the English in particular, behave so badly when they are abroad? We just can't seem to get it out of our psyche and character. Give young English lads and lasses an alcoholic drink and the inane songs and chants start, then the abuse, then the descent into anti-social behaviour. It is not just football tournaments, but holidays, stag parties, hen parties, etc.
I say abroad, but thinking about it, even here in the Uk in our cities it is the same. York is usually carnage on a Saturday afternoon as drunken mobs descend into the city, women with pink sashes and bunny ears shouting all sorts of language and groups of lads (normally from the northeast) sprawling across the pavements.
I guess this all makes me sound a terrible bore and may be I am, but I feel disappointed when we let ourselves down, particularly in someone else's backyard.

Not for one minute did I or do I expect any new signings etc in May or even early June, that would be unrealistic, but unless I have missed something, are we still not looking to fill Reed and Kreuger posts and did RH not hint that he wanted to change his backroom staff?
I did think the foundations would have been in place by now, or am I misguided and unrealistic?
|Flying flags at matches|

It is something that has taken place in Europe for a long time but is now a growing trend here (evident at Newcastle yesterday) and is probably only a matter of time when it is taken up at St Marys. I admit when you see it on TV it looks pretty good, but I have always wondered how would I feel, if the persons standing in front of me are waving flags and you can hardly see a thing.
What do others feel about flags in the stands being waved by fellow spectators?
